Grav vs Locomotive CMS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Grav as "A modern open source flat-file CMS". It is a free, open-source and self-hosted content management system (CMS) based on the PHP programming language and Symfony web application framework. It uses a flat file database for both backend and frontend. It is more widely used, and growing at a faster rate, than other leading flat-file CMS competitors. On the other hand, Locomotive CMS is detailed as "An open source platform to create, publish and edit sites". It is designed to save time and help you focus on what matters: front-end technology, standard development process and a very low learning curve for your clients.

Grav and Locomotive CMS can be primarily classified as "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" tools.

Some of the features offered by Grav are:

  • Twig
  • YAML
  • Markdown

On the other hand, Locomotive CMS provides the following key features:
